Messenger Reviver 2 temporary download
Both Google and Microsoft unblocked the original Reviver links from their respective browser detection engines within 12 and 3 hours respectfully.
Although frustrating for the need to continually stay on top of these false positives, I do applaud them both for being quick and relatively painless to resolve the situation.
I have returned all the links, with the exception of this page, to the originals.

It seems someone doesn’t like the idea of Messenger Reviver and has reported all my links as malware.
I suspect this may be related to McAfee being slow about removing a recent false positive. Having these false positives removed takes up time in my life every week, but the antivirus vendors have always removed Reviver without question, although naturally they take their time about doing it.
I find the best way to check software (including Messenger Reviver) is to use virustotal.com. The current analysis reveals that almost every vendor agrees it’s clean.
In the past, I have had infrequent threatening comments directed at me, specifically from those who trust their antivirus software without question and claim that I am harming their computer. I have had my registrar falsely accuse of me of distributing malware, giving me a 24 hour warning to “remove it” or risk losing my entire account. In all instances in these situations, after reviewing the real facts, these people stand down.
Ignoring anything else, just thinking logically, why would I, someone who has been assisting people with Messenger problems for for nearly 15 years, run a blog for 10 years, with comments, forum, live chat on a variety Messenger related topics, only to trick a few people into installing malware now. Why would I ruin my reputation like that? It just doesn’t make any sense.
Messenger Reviver does not do anything other than what it says it does. It does not report any statistical data or personal data about yourself or your computer, it does not install anything other than Messenger, it does not contain ads, or contain any income-generating mechanism. Messenger Reviver loses me time and money and it is simply a work of love.
Which is exactly why the icon for Reviver is Messenger with a heart.
Thanks everyone for your support.
